ABSTRACT

Past to present, climate changes take place on every sections of the world during the
history. This is an ordinary fact when these changes occur naturally, i.e. the natural
climate changes are the necessity of our world’s natural behavior, and then the beings
on the world are not affected artificially. However, in recent years, some human
activities that increase the concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the
atmosphere and cause global warming are the most effective factors playing great roles
on changing the climates of the world. The objective of this study is to present the
hydro-ecologic effects of climate changes due to global warming on the hydrologic
characteristics of the world in terms of precipitation, streamflow and evaporation those
of which are closely related to each other and considerably affect the ecological balance.

Keywords: Hydro-ecology, global warming, climate change, greenhouse gases.
